Celebrate Earth Day with Trashy Fashion!
Community members young and old celebrate Earth Day with style, fusing trash and fashion on the runway.
April 22nd, 2013 is the 43rd Anniversary for the global celebration of Earth Day. Earth Day is celebrated around the world by communities, businesses, countries and individuals in a variety of unique ways. None quite compare, however, to the local event in Fernie! This year, the community Earth Day celebration is back, highlighting the much-anticipated 7th annual Trashy But Flashy Fashion Show!
Doors open for the Earth Day events at the Fernie Community Centre on Monday, April 22nd at 6:30 PM, with the fashion show starting at 7pm. The highlight of Earth Day for many is the annual Trashy But Flashy Fashion Show. For the 7th year, the Fashion Show aims to inspire the community to assess their consumption patterns by demonstrating creative methods of re-using. Previous years have featured: a biodegradable packing peanuts and rice cracker packaging dress; a bubble wrap tuxedo; a coffee filter dress; and a young warrior created from coffee and flour bags. No fashion show would be complete without a make-up artist, a catwalk, lights, and a DJ. There is a place for every style, age and ability. Cash prizes are distributed for a number of categories, and all entrants receive a t-shirt. A panel of judges will be looking for elements of recycled material used, unique use of materials, creativity, and craftsmanship.
